[Colbert] would be justified in not taking responsibility for anyone taking what he says seriously because his show is on a comedy channel.
The great grandparent post you're responding to makes a reference to something from The Daily Show, portraying the reference as fact. Should I take that poster seriously? You're kidding yourself if you think that people don't take The Daily Show / The Report seriously. I consider The Daily Show to be one of the most influential programs on TV, particularly amongst young people. Whether its comical portrayal of information or fear mongering bullshit, if people listen to it enough, they will start to believe it. Its clear that The Daily Show and The Report are more likable and funny; I presume that's why Stuart & Colbert don't get harassed like Beck.
For the record, I do watch the Report and TDS and I do not watch Glen Beck (or Fox for that matter).
Only poor people pay taxes.
Clearly you have never reviewed the IRS' Statistics of Income. I'll quickly fill you in. People making less than 40k per year pay less than 5% of all personal income tax. That is 57% of ALL tax files pay 5% of ALL individual income tax. If you don't believe me, look it up. Now, I realize that federal income tax is only a portion of the taxes everyone pays, but PLEASE don't keep spreading the BS that you're spreading.
